OLD TOWN (CNS) - A fire burned a limousine bus transporting a wedding party Saturday, but no one was hurt, a San Diego Fire Department dispatcher said.

The incident occurred about 12:27 p.m. just uphill from Old Town.

"The cause was electrical in nature," the dispatcher said.

The dispatcher said firefighters in Engines 8 and 25 from Mission Hills and the Morena area responded to the blaze, and extinguished the fire in 12 minutes.

Eastbound Taylor Street was closed briefly.

Train and trolley service at the Old Town Station were not affected.
